    NBC10's Cydney Long talks to friends and neighbors of the Winslow Township man who died after being shot by police in his home.

    Police shot and killed a suspect in a wooded area of Camden County Friday morning.

    Local authorities remained mum on exactly what brought officers to the 400 block of Berlin New Freedom Road in Winslow Township shortly before 9 a.m.

    Patrons at the nearby Golden Nugget Tavern reported hearing gunshots as police investigated a trailer down a nearby dirt road.

    One person was taken from the scene and and later died at Cooper University Hospital, according to county prosecutors.
